Bills tight end Kevin Everett, thought to be permanently paralyzed after a freak injury in Sunday’s game, will likely walk again.
Kevin Everett voluntarily moved his arms and legs on Tuesday when partially awakened, prompting a neurosurgeon to say the Buffalo Bills’ tight end would walk again â€” contrary to the grim prognosis given a day before.
“Based on our experience, the fact that he’s moving so well, so early after such a catastrophic injury means he will walk again,” said Dr. Barth Green, chairman of the department of neurological surgery at the University of Miami school of medicine. “It’s totally spectacular, totally unexpected,” Green told The Associated Press by telephone from Miami.
Now, obviously, a young athlete in the prime of his career expects to be able to play, not merely walk. This is still sad news. It’s a big upgrade from yesterday, though.
